Facebook Pushes New Photo Layout, Looks Similar To Google+


Facebook has been doing some quick changes in it’s important features. The social network has recently introduced a new option for the users that allows them to hide the ‘ticker‘ – a feature that runs real-time activities of  Facebook friends.

After the amendments in ticker feature, Facebook has now pushed a new layout for viewing images on its platform – which looks very much similar to the layout of photo viewer in Google+. Many users have already received the new updated photo viewer layout on their Facebook profiles, however there is no official word on whether Facebook is going to permanently use this layout on all users’ profiles or just few.

For the new changes in layout, Facebook has moved the area of ‘comments and likes’  from bottom to the top right hand side of the photo viewer – exactly like in Google+, while the options of tagging and viewing previous and next photos appears when a user hovers the mouse pointer over selected image.

  1. Yes, the new Facebook photo layout IS very similar to Google+! In fact, I thought the first one, was Google’s until I read the caption.

    However, the light box (is that what it is called?) is responsible for some of that similarity. Light boxes views aren’t unique to either Google nor Facebook. Flickr has that feature too. Although it doesn’t remind me quite as much of Google+…
